* Vond the warlock from Creator/LawrenceWattEvans' novel ''[[Literature/{{Ethshar}} The Unwilling Warlord]]'' is a non-evil version. Vond gains access to tremendous magical power and easily conquers several small kingdoms, creating an empire. But Vond is not a bad ruler: for example, he helps peasants to grow crops with his magic. He mostly plays with his warlockry, spends time with his harem (assembled without any coercion), and delegates the "boring stuff" to the ruling council. [[spoiler:And then it gets kinda doubly subverted, when the Calling - every warlock's bane - catches up with him...]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheElminsterSeries'': In ''Elminster: The Making of a Mage'', a country was taken over by a [[EvilSorcerer cruel]] [[TheArchmage archmage]]. He's known as "[[TheCaligula the Mad Mage]]" because torturing people is his pastime. Elminster tries to defeat him, but almost gets killed and has to be rescued by Mystra. One of Elminster's friends is a more ambiguous version: she's a very powerful mage and also queen of her country. Though not cruel, she's feared by her subjects due to being reckless and unstable.
